Did that ... here is the relevant paragraph from autoconf.h
 * Network device support
#define CONFIG_PPP 1
#define CONFIG_UCCS8900 1
#define CONFIG_UCCS8900_HW_SWAP 1
#undef CONFIG_SMC9194
#undef CONFIG_NE2000

These are the file sizes of the (presumably) relevant sources:
 24411 uCcs8900.c
 15925 uCcs8900.h

Well, it doesn't. Here is the boot output. What should I try ?
